Takako Minekawa - "Destron" by Matt Bomarr


takako minekawa - "destron" (download)

This song has been a staple on many "mix tapes" I've made for people since this came out in 1996. It's got that head-nodding, yet melodic, poppy feel to it. It's a great song to listen to loud in headphones. Takako Minekawa's love for Kraftwerk, Moog synthesizers, vocoders and Casios is really apparent on this record. Amazingly, as much as I love this record, I've never gone and checked out any of her other releases. After re-visiting this yet again, I'm going to have to. Oh, and she's married to Japanese electronic producer Cornelius.
